I travel all over the world and live in Chicago. The Hotel was unexpected delight. This is something that you would expect to find in Chicago, LA or Hing Kong. My first stay at TheHotel in March of 2013. I was impressed with The Hotel! It reminded me of the W Hotel on Lake Shore Drive in Chicago. It has... More

During a business stay I suffered a severe migraine (not a typical ailment for me); the front desk staff and manager made me an ice pillow (vacuum packed bag of ice WITH a head dip in the middle!) to offer aid. Each staff member genuinely asked if I was ok the next day - was wonderful to feel cared for... More

I thought this hotel was nice. I didn't notice anything extra-special about it, just that it is a little pricey. We didn't pay regular price because we were included on a group rate, but $400 for a regular night would not be in our budget. I didn't think there was anything super special about it that it should cost that... More

I stayed at the Kirkwood on business for one night, 6/24/14. I had dinner and breakfast at the Class Act Restaurant. The price/value at the Kirkwood can't be beat. Do not hesitate to stay here. You won't be disappointed. The room product is superb. The menu selection and service was top notch.

This hotel is exquisitely designed and outfitted. Our room looked brand new. It is part of the hospitality arts department at Kirkwood Community College. It is likely the graduates will never work in as fine a hotel as they first trained in. I have stayed in the Plaza, the Waldorf, and many others of comparable reputation and this really stacks...

We stayed two nights at the Kirkwood for a wedding. The service was excellent! The rooms are comfortable and very clean. Only two negatives, no mini refrigerator in some of the rooms and no swimming pool. The food was excellent and the lobby is spacious and relaxing.

This was an elegant experience. Ulta Modern, green and all around beautiful hotel. Check in was fast and easy. Food was elegant, presentation awesome. Decor appealing and service on top. I will certainly stay on a return trip Kirkwood College students were great.

Hadnever been to Cedar Rapids before and relatives we were visiting recommended this hotel. Glad they did! Simple, clean design, excellent bed and bath and, always important to me, QUIET. Didn't have a great deal of interaction with staff, but what there was was pleasant and the bartenders in the lounge area were especially so. One suggestion: the photo we... More

We were nervous to seemingly be so far from downtown Cedar Rapids. It turned out it was not so far nor was it so desirable to stay in the city of either five or seven smells. When we checked into the hotel we could not have asked for a better experience. The woman remembered everything we said, lived up to... More
